Suzuki has announced some upgrades to its compact supermini.
The Swift is one of Suzuki’s world strategic models and makes strong statements in styling, impact safety, driving performance, handling as well as offering low fuel consumption and low CO2 emissions.
The powertrain is a Euro 5 compliant 1.2 litre engine incorporating Dual VVT (Variable intake and exhaust Valve Timing) that produces 91bhp at 6,000rpm with a torque figure of 87lb/ft at 4,800rpm.
Swift is highly fuel efficient offering 56.5mpg on the EC combined cycle for the manual transmission model with 2WD. C02 emissions are also one of the lowest in its class producing just 116g/km on the combined cycle (manual transmission).
As part of the minor change specification upgrades from June 2014, all Swift models (except Sport) are now fitted with LED DRL (Daytime Running Lights) and front fog lights. A gear shift indicator has now been added to help aid fuel efficiency as well as Tyre Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) for added driver safety. These two features have also now been added to the 1.6-litre Sport model.
Also from June 2014, SZ4 adds navigation and DAB digital radio as standard to the already high specification that includes automatic air conditioning, electric rear windows, rear privacy glass (five door models), push button keyless start, automatic headlamps, cruise control and power folding mirrors with integrated turn indicators.
